BEST AFRICAN TEXTILES – KUBA CLOTH


In post - Renaissance Europe, Kuba Cloth, the embroidered and appliqué decorated raffia cloth from the Congo (formerly Zaire), entered the curio cabinets and treasuries of nobles and kings as the finest representation of African art. More recently, the mastery of Kuba cloths' abstract patterning was a source of inspiration to artists such as Matisse, who displayed part of his large collection on the wall of his studio. www.phasesafrica.com directly trade with the Congo's most renowned source on Kuba and Shoowa Cloth.

URGENT ACTION REQUIRED | MAJOR EXPORT OF RHINO CALVES FROM SA TO CHINA VIA THAILAND.

Image courtesy Daily Mail UK
This morning I got credible information about the imminent export of a large amount of rhino calves to China by Mafunyane (Marnus Pretorius) who is in the Brits area.

This is a wholesale export of our heritage! I have confirmed that permits have been issued to Mafunyane to export these calves to Thailand and assume that they will then be re-routed to China.


We need to ensure that there is accountability here - why are permits being issued for the export of such a large number of calves to China/Thailand and what is the purpose of this export.


What does the Rhino Working Group have to say about this. What does the DEA have to say about this and what does CITES have to say about this?


Are we now just going to allow our rhinos (our heritage to be exported) to be farmed for horn in China????


What is the NSPCA going to do about this? The stress that these small calves will be put under on such a long journey will surely lead to deaths as it has happened in the past.
You need to share this story worldwide to ensure that we get answers.
